Make America Great Again?
it´s obvious where all this is headed…
Bashar Assad has de facto won the civil war, although the US still support the
Kurdish enclave in the north.
Haftar, the supposed “warlord”, really a legitimate power-player armed and
abetted by many foreign governments, will probably take power there in the near
future. He is widely seen as a Russian asset and is said to have promised the
Russians two military bases on Libyan soil.
Austria, Italy, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Greece, and Serbia have
good relations with Russia, Austria is so pro-Russian that other European
intelligence services no longer trade information with them. And Austria is a “Western”
nation, not some post-Communist ex-Soviet banana republic. France might go
pro-Russian if and when Madame Le Pen wins the presidential elections. Italy
has also joined a Chinese-dominated economic alliance. In Britain, Brexit
betrayal is looming (bad for Russia) but it might lead to a serious political
crisis in the near future (good for Russia). If Brexit does happen, Scotland might
leave the UK and Northern Ireland be plunged into another “time of troubles”.
Good bye, Great Britain!
Where is that democratic revolution you promised me?
China is huge in Africa.
relations with Russia and China, although this might change if the local “color
revolution” gets successful. It hasn´t yet.
will never leave Crimea.
KOREA: The most surreal scenario of them all. Is Trump actually giving away
American hegemony in Korea to China? Couple this with his enigmatic statements
about Japan, and it looks as if the US is setting the stage to leave the East
Asian theatre altogether?!
The US is seriously considering negotiations with the Taliban. If US leaves,
Afghanistan will become part of the Russosphere or Sinosphere (or simply a
failed state - or even more failed than at present). Chinese companies already mining rare earths in Afghanistan. TURKEY: Couldn´t care less about what America thinks, makes deals with Russia. IRAQ: Set to become pro-Iranian?
STATES: Not very stable.
If this is
how Trump wants to “Make America Great Again”, he isn´t being very successful.
He can´t even get rid of Maduro, who is in his own back yard! Of course, none
of this is Trump´s fault. Declining US power is a “structural” problem and has
been working itself out for a long time. With Clinton as president, the US
might have been even worse off, considering her adventurist foreign policy in
Still, I think it´s obvious which way this is headed. Russia and China
will at some point take over as the world´s new great powers.
explains the Russian Collusion Narrative in the United States – it´s a
distorted reflection of the decline of US power globally. Funny it´s the
*Democrats* who peddle it. Of course, conspiracist distortions won´t solve the
issue. Cui bono? It could almost be argued that the constant sabotage attempts
of the Trump presidency plays in the hands of, you know, Russia or something…
